MARCHING TO A DIFFERENT BEET
AND THE BEET GOES ON...
With a few simple steps Joe turned my least favorite menu item into my new favorite. Here's what he did:
Remove the greens from the beets and chop into chunks.
Arrange on a baking sheet and toss with a good Olive Oil (we use California Olive Ranch Extra Virgin for everything), salt and pepper.
Preheat oven to 350 and allow to cook for 35-40 minutes.
The delicious kick?? Remove from the oven, place in a bowl with fresh blue cheese and toss. The hot beets will melt the cheese to create a delicious, healthy, scrumptious addition to any meal!
QUICK TIP: A good olive oil goes a long, long way! A simple salad we added to our beet meal was made even more delicious by adding California Olive Ranch Extra Virgin Olive oil. We chopped onions, heirloom tomatoes and parsley, tossed it all in the olive oil and yum, yum, yum had a fantastic, healthy meal!
